In "The Solution Lies Within", surgeon and psychotherapist, Thierry Janssen examines the daunting task of reconnecting: reconnecting our mind to our body, in order to gain a true sense of well-being, and reconnecting our body to our inner resources, in order to prevent or to heal illness. Through simple often age-old solutions, the author sets out on a fascinating quest, exploring Western and Eastern techniques, favoring a global approach to the human being and advocating a form of holistic medicine based on the cooperation between conventional and complementary or alternative practitioners. Inviting the reader to discover the astounding capacities of human beings, "The Solution Lies Within" is a must-read for anyone interested in his or her health and well-being, in particular for those looking for an alternative to today's trend of over-medication. Based on more than 500 recent scientific studies, the book is broken up into three parts: a mind-based medicine to treat the body, a body-based medicine to treat the mind and, lastly, and an energy-based medicine to treat the body and the mind. Such a work is unprecedented.
Avoiding any bias, the author offers a new and original understanding of health and disease. And the clarity of his style deftly transforms a complex subject matter into an enjoyable and highly-readable work.
